Alberts out as lightweight trio gets announced

The Sharks team to face the Lions this weekend shows a few unexpected changes to the team that went to Bloemfontein and beat the Cheetahs. The first thing to note is that Willem Alberts has been ruled out with injury and with Jean Deysel still suspended, we will be running out with a lightweight trio of Botes, Daniel and Kankowski.

With this in mind, Plumtree still decided to drop our best non-loose forward in Bismarck du Plessis and start with John Smit in the hooker jumper with Beast Mtawarira and Eugene van Staden either side of him.

In the second row Plumtree has continued with the experiment of playing both Sykes and Mostert together while Hargreaves warms the bench again.

The backline, unsurprisingly, has remained unchanged, with Fred Michalak still waiting on the bench to make an impact in this year’s Super Rugby season.

With all the problems in the loose forwards, Marcell Coetzee gets another chance to prove he is the next big forward from the Sharks Academy.
